Opening Vignettes:


In this chapter, we discuss sampling and how to infer something from about a population by taking a sample.  Several sampling methods are discussed.

Next, we illustrate how the sample means tend to cluster around the population mean.

Finally, we show that regardless of the distribution of the population, if the sample if sufficiently large, the sampling distribution will be approximately normal
